My guess, mutt overwrote it; while mutt does seem to have the best
processing of Mail-Followup-To out of any MUA I have seen so far, it
does have its limitations.

IMHO mutt really needs to let you preview the Mail-Followup-To
before sending the message, and make modifications to it if

(another example of wanting to change this: some mails I make to this
mailing list a "high priority" and I would like to get CCs, but other
mails to this list aren't as important...)

PS. This message has
Mail-Followup-To: debian-devel@lists.debian.org
I am just curious what will happen...
